I can’t thank you enough for the wealth of information that your site provides

Hi Audra!! I can’t thank you enough for the wealth of information that your site provides to the community. My husband and I had to enter our son in the public school system last April and never even heard of the DeKalb Portal Account. Thanks to your email this morning, I  realized this had never been set up. So happy to now have set it up and also have the new APP! I would have been totally clueless if not for your email! Keep up the great work! Have a great Holiday weekend! 


FOUND: Chihuahua mix dog

SAMSUNGI found a neutered male chihuahua mix dog Monday night in Peachtree Corners at the intersection of Woodhill Dr. and Ryan Rd. I’m hoping that someone in Dunwoody may know the dog’s owner. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a microchip.

He’s young, maybe a year old. He weighs between 5 and 10 lbs., and he’s reddish tan. There may be some miniature pinscher mixed in with the chihuahua. He’s clean and well fed, and you can see in the pattern of fur around his neck that he was wearing a collar at some point.

Please let me know if you recognize this dog. Thanks!

Infinite Campus Replaced DeKalb County’s ESIS/Parent Portal and you should get the app today!

Note from Audra:  I now have this app on my phone and so do my boys.  We are LOVING it. It reminds me of the tool that my favorite local private school uses… which is a huge compliment to DeKalb Schools.  I had initial trouble getting my account set up due to some unusual “personal” problems but I could not be more impressed with the help desk.  I’m seriously overwhelmed with how professionally and competently the Infinite Campus help desk handled my complicated issues.  Kudos to Mr. Heptinstall at PCMS for also having a hand in getting me started!  If y’all have kids in DeKalb School systems you need to set this up for you and your kiddos today!
